TransitScreen and real estate management firm Bozzuto Management Company announced last week that the two have formed a new partnership. The partnership will see TransitScreen’s real-time commute information boards deployed in the lobbies of “select” Bozzuto buildings in New York, New Jersey, Boston and D.C.
“More of our residents have become car-free or car-light and are using public transportation and we aim to support their decision,” Khushbu Sikaria, vice president of advisory services at Bozzuto, said in a statement. “As a service to them, we wanted an innovative, forward-thinking, interactive platform that instantly delivers the information they need.”
The screens in Bozzuto buildings will display local transit information (as is TransitScreen’s forte) as well as a new “Community Messaging” feature so Bozzuto staff can post important news and information for residents.
The Bozzuto partnership is just the latest for 1776-based TransitScreen. The company announced a national partnership with JLL in February, and has also landed deals with TouchTunes, MakeOffices, Discovery Communications and the National Institutes of Health.
“Bozzuto was one of our first customers, and we are excited to formalize a partnership on a much broader scale,” Ryan Croft, TransitScreen cofounder and COO, said in a statement. “We have a very similar vision about designing communities around daily life. We are excited to partner with an innovative industry leader like Bozzuto.”
Bozzuto (according to the company) manages over 60,000 apartments, so the potential for growth in this partnership is significant.
